Doctoral Research Centre

The Doctoral Research Centre underwent a full refurbishment in January 2019 to provide our PhD students with exceptionally high-quality spaces for working and socialising. A key aim of the improvement works was to encourage a strong sense of community among students. To meet these needs, flexible working spaces and shared study facilities were created and the building was also equipped with improved accessibility features.
